We didn't spend long but we really enjoyed the time we had here. The highlights were feeding the pigs and also seeing the donkeys. A great city farm.

We had a quick visit on Saturday morning. It was easy to get to. Our children (9, 8, 6 and 2) enjoyed it. It was free and I imagine if you were local that they do lots of activities throughout the week. There is a...More

Have been coming to the farm for around 2 years, always a nice atmosphere, happy cared for animals and a quaint little shop. My favourite animals are the little donkeys and the goats. I miss the cows and I always like to stroke the cats....More

I met my son at Spitalfields where I bought some silver and resin earrings at a booth and had fresh falafel from another. Lots to see and a fun place to walk around

Had a fun day out with friends and kids here, although it's small the staff are friendly and you can get pretty up close to the animals. There's space to wash up too after petting sessions and a little stall of homemade produce for refreshments...More

What an absolute gem! Firstly it's a completely free attraction slap bang in the city of London so that's great in it own right. The farm has so much character it is just incredible. A real must if you're a tourist and if like me...More

For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its
most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the
next big global trend, the hipster zone of
Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around
the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain
hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers
throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting
some of London's most popular bars and clubs.
